Unions involved in the ongoing nationwide bus strike are planning a host of protest marches this week as they intensify the industrial action.
Bus drivers have been on strike for over two weeks now.
They are demanding a pay hike of 18 percent, while employers are offering 9 percent, as suggested by the CCMA.
Negotiations deadlocked for a third time last week.
“We want the national and provincial Department of Transport and all those responsible for public transportation to also to take an interest and assist us in reassuring that the resolution is reached.”
Meanwhile, bus driver Edward Mcdonald said even though he was not currently able to pay all his bills, he was positive that it will be worth the sacrifice.
“We don’t actually worry about sacrificing right now, all we want is our two digits, and if they do not agree during negotiations then something really bad is going to happen here."
